To paraphrase Paul McCartney, rumors of our death have been greatly exaggerated. The Archive plans on being around for quite a while (forever in fact).

Regarding the Dead content, we always respect the wishes of bands in the Archive, and would remove the collection if asked. However, to date no such request has been made by the Dead or their management.

That's actually a quote from Mark Twain that Paul is quoting.

Not that that has anything to do with anything.

those people in the too board seem fairly certain that all the sbds will be sold on Itunes and therefore no longer available for free trading .... first I ever heard of i tunes involvment ... does i tunes support lossless files ???
seems like kind of a disservice to the music if not

I found this link where Weir says he's thinking about it. Thing is, its from March.

Why these people are freaking out about it now is beyond me. If this were true, I think the band would have said NO to their inclusion to the Archive (which started uploading shows a couple weeks after the article).

I Sure Hope Not!!! Grateful Dead shows disappear from the archive; when they are feleased commercially. The new "Roxio" NAPSTER uses the Microsoft WMA format and APPLE has it's own audio codecs. Neither one are equal the FLAC or SHN lossless.

It makes little sense to offer inferrior downloads; if GDM is a leader with HDCDs, DVDs and Mickey Hart's own DVD 5 channel audio mixes...

Too much of a good thing is never a good thing. I just placed my order for a 2 terabyte harddrive. Thats how much room I estimate I will need to get all the dead shows downloaded. The archive is great but they are just the intermediary. One word from above and all the soundboards are gone.

Face facts, The Dead are selling there soundboards from there current tour for $25 a show. The move to itunes makes sense considering the Dead's corporate machine.
